Montgomery County authorities have interviewed the woman who alleges 
that comedian Bill Cosby groped her.
Now they want to hear what Cosby has to say, according to a press 
release from Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr.
"Authorities have asked Cosby's lawyer, Walter Phillips, for permission 
to interview Cosby," said the four-paragraph statement, which initially 
was released Monday night to only three reporters working out of the 
courthouse in Norristown.
Phillips, however, is keeping mum about what his client will do.
He did not return three phone calls from the Daily News yesterday 
requesting comment.
The statement said the alleged victim met with detectives on Saturday 
and gave them a statement "concerning the events she described in her 
original complaint which she says occurred at Cosby's home. "
She later met with First Assistant District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, 
the release says.
Detectives from the D.A.'s office and the Cheltenham Township Police 
Department, where Cosby has a home, are "in the process of interviewing 
other persons who might have knowledge of the incident," the news 
release said.
After detectives complete their investigation, Castor will decide if 
criminal charges against Cosby, "or anyone else," are warranted, the 
news said. Castor and Ferman declined to elaborate on the statement.
The woman, a former employee of Temple's athletic department, reported 
the alleged groping to Canadian police on Jan. 13. She said it occurred 
a year ago at Cosby's Elkins Park mansion. *
